Aquí un artículo que no pierde vigencia, y que a pesar de la advertencia, el mundo no tenga que sufrir las consecuencias de la próxima elección presidencial en USA, si es que el ganador es “el loco” McCain.

Beware the zealot.
About a week ago the Times ran a profile of Hossein Shariatmadari, an Iranian who, at 27, was sentenced to life in prison by the Shah for his political views, “whose toenails and fingernails were ripped out, whose teeth were kicked in, who was shocked with electricity and had the soles of his feet beaten.” Today, Shariatmadari is “the voice of hard-line Iran, not only hard-line, but also radical, secretive and uncompromising.” He makes Mahmoud Ahmanidejad look moderate in comparison. Shariatmadari is to Iran what John McCain is to the Republican Party: a bitter reactionary, a zealot on a mission to avenge his imprisonment and torture by demonizing everyone else while making himself look saintly. Beware.
